F1 bosses to investigate after race restarts with marshal on track

Updated: 


A Formula 1 marshal was lucky to escape with his life after a race was restarted while he was still on the track.

Formula 1's governing body is set to investigate the incident, which occurred following a safety car period at the Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday.

Autosport has quoted a spokesman saying that procedures were not 'properly executed'. The International Automobile Federation (FIA) says it will produce a report to ensure the incident is not repeated.

The marshal had been clearing debris from the start/finish straight following Nico Hulkenberg's first-lap crash.

The cars were released from behind the safety car at the end of lap three, but the marshal had not yet left the circuit. Reports suggest that race control had confirmed three times with the clerk of the course that track was clear of debris and people.

Footage shows the man running from across the tarmac as the field of Formula 1 cars bears down on him.
